This is a picture of perfect unity between Jesus and the Father. He only does what He sees the Father doing. As a man, apart from God, He knows that can do nothing of eternal significance. But with God He has power and authority.
This is such an important model for us – to live in daily communion with God’s Spirit and to ask Him to show us how we can be a part of what He is doing.
I can so easily rush off for the day and forget to ask the Holy Spirit to lead me in what He has for me to do that day. And that leads to striving in my own strength and getting stressed and worn out.
This is a timely reminder, especially at this busy time of year, for me to stop and look for what the Father is doing. May I find His strength and His peace as I move through each day with Him.
